Murder mystery from director Josef Losey. When Dutch artist Jan Van Rooyen (Hardy Kruger) is discovered in a cottage with a murdered woman, it seems a cut and dried case for Inspector Morgan (Stanley Baker). Although Van Rooyen soon admits to having an affair with the dead women, who he believed to be married, Morgan's discovery that she was not only single but involved with a high-level diplomat, leads him to dig deeper.
Noir Noggin: “This above average whodunit was directed with style and conviction by Joseph Losey, an American émigré in London who brought much of his own feelings of cultural and social displacement to bear.”
